To celebrate Colin's first birthday, we had a little family party. After considering several options, I decided to go with a "C" themed birthday brunch. Thanks to the generosity of our family, we are now well-stocked with new toys!
The menu (I will admit a few of these were a bit of a stretch...):
Cinnamon French Toast Casserole
Crustless Spinach and Cheddar Quiche
Cream Cheese, Bagels and Smoked Salmon
Carved Ham and Rolls
Chicken Salad Wraps
Cut Fruit Salad
Cheese and Crackers
Champagne and Orange Juice or Cranberry Juice
Carrot Cake Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting
I'll be sharing the recipes for the Cinnamon French Toast Casserole and Carrot Cake Cupcakes soon, bit in the meantime, here are a few shots of the spread. I tend to provide enough food for double the number of my guests, because you never know when something will be extra popular!
Finally, here is the birthday boy very much enjoying his first cake experience. We are standing in front of all 52 of his weekly photos. I can't believe my little guy is 1!
